KAN YU (6) is an above average type who commences her four year-old campaign tonight. She has a good stand record and will acquit herself well. TITANS SWORD (4) was a handy effort on debut and with the improvement factor he can place again along with HAZZASSASSIN (10) and SHANIA COURT (1). SELECTIONS: TEN COMMANDERS (3), Kan Yu (6), Titans Sword (4), Hazzassassin (10) RATINGS: 3/ 6/ 4/ 10/ 1/ 12/ 13/ 2/ 5 SUGGESTED BET: HEI GIFT (4) to win 2 Heathcote Hot Bake 7.20 2180m. $2000.

He was slow to begin from the inside alley at Geelong but that didn t stop him from blowing away his rivals by a widening 12m. He looks too good for these. His only danger will be CASINO PRINCESS (1). This tough mare resumes tonight but she did win a stand trial on this circuit recently and she will be the pilot. BULLDOG TYLER (3) hit the line hard for third to Fell from Locksley two back at Shepparton then he failed to flatter at Echuca last time from a poor draw. He will be close to the speed tonight and will be in the finish. HE HAS RISEN (5) is also first up from a break and he has been trialling only fairly here but include him in your multiples along with HES ALBERT (4). SELECTIONS: WILLOUGHBY (2), Casino Princess (1), Bulldog Tyler (3), He Has Risen (5) RATINGS: 2/1/3/5/4/6/7 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi First Four 2/ 1,3/ 1,3.4.5/ 1,3,4,5 (Cost $20, which gives 166.67%) 3 Heathcote Hotel 7.52 2180m. $2000.

He will sit just off the pace and will have no problems disposing of these. Multiples look the best option to get a quid. BOY FROM IPANEMA (2) sprint laned to victory at Tabcorp Park under stand start conditions last time and he should slot in behind the leader from the draw and get his shot via the passing lane. PEPPERELL BEIJING (1) should hold the lead from the ace and he is a must include in your trifectas along with ROAR TALENT (5). CENTONIC (4) (Sports Town -- Vixen Star) is on debut for Keith Salathiel and this four year-old was a trial winner here 20 days ago in 2:06.1.

STORMY SOUND (9) ran a good race first up from a break at Tabcorp Park two back finishing a close up fourth to Flooding Creek in a heat of a C0 series then he did things wrong in the Final. He ll get a good run through and should run well. MOOSE JAW (8) whacked away ok for fourth to Lyns Charm at Maryborough and this race is no harder. WENDY PACIFIC (1) was placed at Shepparton two runs ago after having a soft run in behind the speed so from the draw she ll get her chance. SOUND EDITION (2) was placed four of 15 last season, draws well and goes into the mix along with ACEY GRACIE (5). INDIGO BANNER (7) (Astreos -- Save Your Kisses) makes his first appearance for Michael Caspaney. This four year-old entire was well beaten in a Geelong trial a month back.

RUSTLER BOY (1) has really started to hit his strap this time in. He was a solid third to Willoughby here three back from a wide alley, flew home for second behind Arveesix at Bendigo two runs ago then he worked hard in the last lap and went down fighting behind Kingussie on the same circuit 12 days ago. He draws to lead tonight and will take catching. LUKE PETER (9) sprint laned to victory at Tabcorp Park two back then he motored home from for third to Grantime Dor at Melton 10 days back. He has a handy trailing draw and will be competitive. LEGACY LANE (3) finished fast along the passing lane for second to Aniteattheopera at Maryborough last start from a tricky alley and he fares much better this time around. They rate clear of DEEJAYELL (2), MISS JULES (8) and LUCE SOUND (5). SELECTIONS: RUSTLER BOY (1), Luke Peter (9), Legacy Lane (3), Deejayell (2) RATINGS: 1/ 9/ 3/ 2/ 8/ 5 6 Central Milk Supp. 9.16 1690m. $2000. 3yo 3R0 Only RBD Mobile 1 RAW DIESEL Rita Burnett Fr 21.00 2 KENS DILEMMA Paul Weidenbach Fr 9.00 3 2526s SMOOTH COURAGE NZ Daryl Douglas Fr ★1.50 4 2908s ARACHNIPHOBIA Chris Alford Fr 7.00 5 76 YOUNG PERSISTENCY Todd Matthews Fr 34.00 6 75s8 ROYAL SUBJECT Vince Tonna Fr 34.00 7 77458 WALTZING ROSE Robert Walters Fr 26.00 Second Line 8 7s887 ASHER Ross Conway Fr 34.00 9 CRUISIN FELLA John Caldow Fr 11.00 10 64259 GOODLOOKINROSIE Ross Payne Fr 34.00 11 2s GRANDE SORRISO Gavin Lang Fr 9.00 12 0s657 CUPBOARD DRINKER (Em1) Barry Price (C) Fr Assessment: SMOOTH COURAGE (3) commences his three year- old campaign tonight and this looks a good race for him. He raced some of the best youngsters around last season and was far from disgraced. He had an easy kill in a trial here six days ago and will be a tough nut to crack. KENS DILEMMA (2) (Panorama -- Racygracie) is on debut for Paul Weidenbach. This guy was second in that trial mentioned above and from the nice draw he can show up. CRUISEN FELLA (9) (Pacific Fella -- Superior Stature) makes his first appearance for Maree Caldow. He was an impressive trial winner here recently dashing home in 58.9 and will be dangerous from the trailing draw. GRANDE SORRISO (11) was a narrow second on debut at Yarra Valley back in May and we haven t seen her since. She was well beaten in a trial here which is a query but include her in your exotics. RAW DIESEL (1) (D M Dilinger -- Chance For Glory) is a first starter prepared by Rita Burnett who comes up with the ace but has only been trialling fairly on this track.

He steps up in distance and class but there was a lot to like about the performance plus he may be able to get the lead again tonight. STRIDENT (7) is a smart eight year-old who has won six from eight. He beat Get The Monet last time at Cobram then was sent for a break. He was third in a trial here six days back and although drawn the extreme alley he rates highly. FRANCO SHUTTLE (2) got headed off for speed at Shepparton last time then broke on the turn and finished out the back behind Punt High. He ll appreciate getting out into the open from this alley tonight. STEVE MCQUEEN (10) is first up for two months but he has trialled well here and is a class animal when right. YOU LAZY BOY (11) and CHROMEAZONE (12) can both run home well with a cart into It while LONGTAN SPUR (1) can improve on his inglorious effort here last start.

He was awesome here first up from a break 13 days ago when he produced a powerful sprint from the rear to blow his rivals away in fast time. He ll be further improved and is the one to beat. ALGRANCO ALIVE (7) will be his only danger with this speedy conveyance likely to find the lead from the extreme alley. CARLOS CULLEN (8) won here in 1:57.8 four runs ago and he is a clear third pick.

He is a good beginner and looks the leader. ENJOYABLE (8) got knocked over at Tabcorp Park two back then he was luckless at Maryborough finishing a close up fifth behind Mister Jonas. He will be value and worth a ticket each way. CARLETONHILL (9) found his stable mate Windy Dollar a touch too strong last time at Horsham and if he begins today he ll be competitive. ADAMISKA (1) has a rough show from the ace alley along with DYNAMIC CHRYSTAL (3) and GOLDEN WAHINE (4).

He was a tough death seat third here two back then he again did some work over the final circuit and battled on well for fourth behind Crusader Lass at Nyah. Should he not gain a start this is a raffle. BJELKE JOH (4) wasn t a bad run at Horsham last time when fourth to Kentucky Jasper and a repeat of that will see him in the finish here. EBONYS STAR (9) was a good second at Maryborough five runs back but he has been all over the shop since. He won t strike an easier race than this. ROCKN KATIE (12) has issues with the start but if she gets away with them she can be dangerous on the strength of her second here three runs ago. FINGERSCROSSED (5) had trialled well prior to her first up sixth at Maryborough and she can improve against this lot. Rough hopes go to HEY WHATS DOIN (2), SCALA KNIGHT (6), ELITE FELLA (7) and LORDY GIRL (10).

He draws wide, will need the run but he is the class runner. TAYARNA MIA (1) has been placed her past five and deserves to breakthrough. She ll lead and give you a sight. PRINCE OF ALBERT (8) will get the gun run behind her and looms as an each way threat. LUCKNOW MONICA (4) was placed behind the smart mare Kissmecatie at Tabcorp Park last start and she ll be a force with the right run today. Remaining runners have place claims.

She got knocked out of contention in her repechage of the Australasian Breeders Crown and was subsequently sent for a break. She won a Kilmore trial six days ago and draws well. MY LADY MACRAY (5) is a talented maiden who has been placed three of six. She was placed in a recent Tabcorp Park trial and has the gate speed to negate her wide draw. SUGARLAND (6) (Christian Cullen -- Lindsey Leigh) is on debut for Danny Thackeray. This filly trialled impressively at Shepparton six days ago and with some luck from her wide draw she can be in the finish. MAXIMUM JOY (1) gets the ace draw and she has the early speed to utilise it. HANSOVER TOES (8) is nearing a win and she ll get a cushy run on the pegs. CHECK THE STARS (9) was knocked down on debut and from her trailing draw she can surprise with place hopes to ACROSS THE BREEZE (4) and ZAIRE BELLE (10).

He hasn t won for over two years but this is his best opportunity to get back into the winners list. VILLAGE PATROL (6) battled on well for fourth to Crusader Lass at Nyah last time and should he gain a start he ll be hard to beat. LA DAINIAN (3) got a long way back in the run and he made up plenty of ground for third to Lyns Charm at Maryborough last start. He will be driven much closer today. TACTICAL JOURNEYS (8) is resuming but he strikes a moderate race and draws to get a soft run. CAM LODGE (9) and WENDY ANNE (10) are the next best.

He looks the likely leader again today and will be hard to catch. MELBOURNIAN (5) didn t have the best of luck here last time when fifth to My Gold Art in 1:56.8 and with some fortune form the barrier he can be dangerous.
